dinastro ARTICLES unravel the elements that predict time’s affairs.


Written April 8 2024


Timing with planets gives foresight for your plans ahead.  Without it you plan in the blind.

The word planet is derived from the Greek word meaning wanderer.  Viewed from our Earth, planets travel around us in fixed paths and denote specific passages of time.  The occurrence of a celestial event means we can time our movement with foreknowledge of the outcome ahead.  It has a practical application.

Planetary cycles reveal the event and opens your eye to the foresight of future outcomes.  You can anticipate the event and be proactive in timing the reaction.

Furthermore, a planet cycle in a particular moment of time reveals the timing for another moment in time.  This links time between action and return.   I call these TimeThreads.

Fore- Sight:
–  shows the risk ahead in advance of time
–  helps you align your action with the cycle of the time
–  enables you to manoeuvre the change to your advantage
–  empowers you to modify your response to bring about the result you prefer.

Tracing the path of planets motion we can time years, months, weeks, days, hours.  We can
–  foresee the event, know what to expect
–  link it to a past day it resulted from, the TimeThread
–  link the outcome to a future day
–  plan the response for a day where the cycle reflects success for

This week of April 8 2024 the planet of significance is the Moon, silver queen of the night.
Her transit highlights change.
She is relevant in her conjunction with the Sun where they come together in a Total Solar Eclipse.

Eclipses mean obscurity and reflect hidden things.  This is because one of the celestial lights is concealed.  The path of the eclipse on the earth’s surface is the place of the event shown by the eclipse, with the lore saying that earthquakes follow on the heel of eclipses.  Most recently we have seen earthquakes in Taiwan, Mexico and New York City.   Generally though, all individuals on Earth see an effect from the eclipse.

Timing the eclipse reflects
–  the event is hidden, action is veiled
–  the eclipse includes Mercury, now retrograde, the hidden with accounts of March
–  the remedy from faultiness of March 26
–  the TimeThread is February 28, March 11, April 10
–  the outcome is seen May action, advance, from the constraints of March
–  globally the gathering of armies, assaults, tumults, sedition, drought
–  individually the constrains of March, delay of April, see advancement May 2024.
–  in far-sights, the eclipse advises to stockpile for purpose of March 2026.

April 10:  Moon is queen of the day.  Use this day for meetings, to send requests, proposals.


Because action this day sees the return in May.  What’s more action this day shows union for fruitful engagement May.  The TimeThread is linked to February 15, March 14.  May returns are gains.

Foresight, a powerful tool that caters to each of us with timing our individual pursuits.

Investment:  what we undertake each day expecting to attain a worthy goal.

Investing:  the effort we exert in our daily lives to acquire the desired return in a future day.

Every day, each one of us invests in various areas of our lives.  We invest our thought, time, energy, action in our work, our business, staff, clients, finance, our home and families, our creative projects, our friends.  Whether we are working, meeting, communicating, reading, driving, walking, baking, socialising, effecting a payment, signing, arranging, we take on the act with a particular goal in mind.

Our days actions are far more effective with the use of our diary, a practical register of our ventures in real time.  Diaries serve as a record of our planned activities, to time our investments, and actions.  They provide the framework of time for our action in our environment.

We work with our diaries to remind us of our pursuits in a particular time within the next day/week/month.  It times our activities with parameters so we know when the one meeting ends and the next begins; when to submit the proposal;  the deadline for the piece of work;  when class starts and ends;  we time so we can arrive on time and be present at the event.  If we miss the time, we miss the event.  Thus we plan a time strategy to direct our daily games to our advantage.

Linking our days actions with the cycle of the planets reveal the cycle of the day and times its outcome.   This becomes urgent, for when the cycle is over we lose that opportunity of advance in that moment of time.   By synchronising your action with the cycle of the planets you ensure the action works because the cycles in the skies reflect the movement on earth.

When we send forth a communication, request or proposal, we wait for sunrise and act with the Sun, when the Sun is up.  Setting up a business meeting for 10pm can hardly be expected to work as well as when setting up the meeting for 10am.  We are Sun farmers, we farm our lives with the Sun.

Similarly, we can set up a party for 10pm.  Only now we work with the cycle of the Moon.  We time the party with the relevant Moon cycle, ensuring the party will be well attended and a success.

Planetary cycles reflect the global flow of time.  They give us foresight of time, without which we are in the dark.   Read the cycles below and keep your project/problem in mind.

April 2024 planetary events reflect:

The Lunar Eclipse of March 25.  The Solar Eclipse of April 8.
– March obscurity extending into April 2024. Look to March 11.  Advance May.

Alignment of Sun Moon Mercury Mars Saturn of April 10.
– Breakthrough of May; the action of July 2024.   The purpose for 2026.  Look to agree, move of May.

Conjunction of the outer bodies of Jupiter and Uranus of April 18.
– The surge for May. The move of November 2024.

Mercury retrograde of April 2024.
– April delay, advances May.

Moon phase.
– Cultivate association of January 11 2024 for April.

Planetary cycles.
– Time enigmas whose key of days lies in your own personal chart.

Plan your diary with foresight of future outcomes.   Request your monthly planner for May.

Because we all move, talk and work.

Every day.
All the time.
Every one of us.

Mercury, in mythology is the messenger of the gods.  He represents communications.  He conveys information and resources.

A beautiful youth, always on the move, with winged sandals, winged helmet and staff, Hermes is known as the trickster.  The wings give his movement speed, agility and invisibility, necessary to ensure his movement is smooth and without hindrance.
His qualities are confidence, eloquence, changeable, and deliberate.   The job of Secretary of State Blinken represents the principle of Hermes well, as does mischievous Peter Pan and Trump’s verbal communications.

Hermes signifies thought, the written word, speech, movement.  His motion reflects the running of accounts, finance, documents, emails, decisions, messages, news and communications, law, work affairs, meetings, agreements, contracts.   He enables the finance transactions of deals.

He is also a trafficker of information, the agent in the know, with connections to everyone, informant of associations, deals, and finance exchanges.
Yet his main purpose is to convey the message of the activity of the month as indicated by his cycle aligned to the cycle of the Sun.  Mercury is the finance for the action of Sun.

Mercury’s transit is relevant when we want foresight into the outcomes of our business affairs, and when we time our finance, moves, deals and advancement of plans.   When moving direct with Sun, as he naturally does, Mercury reflects things are working on time with clarity.

But his transit this April is in retrograde, where he appears from Earth’s perspective, to be moving backwards in degree.   He has raced ahead of Sun in March and accounts, plans, and deals need to be reviewed in order to restore his closeness to the action of Sun.  The retrograde occurrence alerts us to his cycle of delay, a wait-period.

So…… if you think, if you interact, read, write, talk, move, work, meet, agree, dispute, sign, buy, sell, plan, direct, then expect a delay.  Delay implies no decision, no action, an extension, a focus of the activity of March, a focus on preparation.  This phenomena happens three times a year.

Here is the Key to the Mercury Cycle of April 2024:
Look to your association of March 19 to see the realm of delay.  The resolve is April 28 2024.
Look to your association of March 11 for the focus of April.  Which advances with gains May 2024.

This is why you need timing for your diary.
Now imagine the benefit of knowing this February 12!

Time Your Action!

consist of Planets whose meaning of movement reveal time’s events and outcomes in individual realms of life.   Planetary energies in motion flow toward affinities that naturally manifest in our busy activities.   You attract that which you indulge.    Prediction defines Time within the particular framework of the Individual’s blueprint.   Predictive individual road-maps interpret the symbolism and communicate the future for essential savvy planning ahead.  Foresights grant the ability to choose in advance the difficult road of holes and traffic or the smoother, swifter route to the desired destination.  An understanding into the who, what, how, why and most important when is conferred.


Ruler of life, ruler of the day, the SUN is not a planet but a star!  His energy conveys our day-time activities, reveals what has previously remained hidden.  He discloses the future.   He proclaims the current vitality of the individual and defines the thing questioned about.  The Sun is intimate with the Moon:  analysis of their impact conveys our monthly activities.    The luminaries are the Lord of the Day and Queen of the Night.  They depict our daily and nightly activities.  Positioning the Sun in the chart shows our monthly activities, whilst the Moon defines our daily activities.    Moon is the Queen portraying life’s movements.  When studying their aspects we can predict future outcomes of current actions.



Everything exists within TIME.   Thus the first planet of consequence is…  Saturn, Lord of Time.

Prediction and Forecasting are concepts of time.  What is going to happen?  By the use of our own free will, we fulfill our life script as depicted in the firmament.   Prediction is merely looking into the book of perpetuity about life that exists now.   We can look at any time within that particular life-time.  We can view the inter-relatedness of our life’s activities as they exist in full completion whilst in motion.  The Wheel is always in motion,  as depicted by the Moon, Queen of Change.   Time is seen through the motion of planets every day, every hour.   Each individual person, entity, business, building, animal, vase, rock has a beginning in time which activates the rotating wheel of time expressed in life.

The significance of future foresights is the elective time they provide.   Most current systems in use today are devoid of the crucial element of time because they view the chart as a fixed picture of the heavens unable to provide the defining element of time for which planetary prediction is uniquely valued for.

Consult your personal road-map for incisive foresights….


The Wheel is divided in 12 Zodiac Signs with 12 Mundane Houses, 3 modalities, 4 elements and 7 spinning planets.  The 12 constellations in the Zodiac family define the ecliptic:  Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces.  The 4 elements refer to the four temperaments:   phlegmatic observer, introvert, detached;  melancholic thinker, idealist, perfectionist;  choleric extrovert, aggressive; challenging;  sanguine enthusiast, social, adventurous.  The 3 modalities refer to the cardinal leaders, fixed determined, mutable changeable.  The 7 planets in motion are Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury, Moon.  The 12 Mundane Houses refer to the identity of the individual, the things they need to live and the expression of activities and associations in their environment.

Prediction uses the reticulate relationships of these elements to foresee the fluctuating effects and outcomes we attract.


When the stars begin to huddle the earth will soon become a puddle..  weather prediction


Foresights reveal what will cross our daily path.  Elective reveal how to manage the foresighted event for advantageous outcomes.   An annual preparation for daily directions, elective planning for successful conclusions.


Formed by the relationship of the Sun and Moon as they move through the skies in relation to the earth.  The luminaries are symbols of light, revealing truth, disclosing the hidden.   Sun conjunct Moon occurs every month during New Moon;  Sun opposing Moon occurs every month during Full Moon.  When the Moon nodes are involved Eclipses occur.  Eclipses veil the truth.  The manifestation of the energy of an eclipse occurs in planetary aspects to the Natal Horoscope.

Planets are Gods who light our immediate weekly, daily, hourly paths and extended annually, monthly, cycles of life.  Timing through planetary motion…


Anticipation of future outcomes influence every decision made.  Forward business forecasting is essential to influence future target acquisition whilst averting uncertainty.  Prediction provides calculated timed clarity on future events.  Use forward foresights as an accurate tool to predict, identify, manage and influence the direction of future time.

Predictive foresights are directed toward manipulating business direction, decisions, plans and outcomes of action.  Essential Business Road Map analysis for planning and defining daily direction.  Calculated planetary cycles present Choice of action for prosperous advancement.

Prediction of future events is enabled through planetary cycles in their unfailing revolutions through space.  Annual cycles are interpreted from the grand outer planetary cycles.  Monthly cycles of the closer planetary cycles depict the monthly direction of time.  There is a time and a place for everything here below as directed from the action in the heavens above.  The 28 day Moon cycle depicts the daily activities coloured by the various communications formed by the planets in motion.   Full Moon indicates the fulfillment of efforts of the month.  The Sun travels in a straight line, moving a degree a day, never retrograde, always true.  The Moon travels swiftly corresponding our busy individual lives, she mirrors our thoughts, intentions and activities, exposing them through her interpretation of time.

The direct motion of the luminaries encourage prediction of future action, events and outcomes.  They light the road ahead.  Foreknowledge enables control of direction.

The machinery of the heavens is like a clock,  in it almost all the variety of motions is from one very simple magnetic force acting on bodies,  as in the clock all motions are from a very simple weight.

— Johannes Kepler

The Who, What, Where, When, Why and How of PREDICTION

Why do we predict?  When do we predict?  How do we predict?  What do we predict?  Who is predicting?

The art of prediction is a necessary skill developed over time to avoid adversity and approach advantage.  To predict means to know in advance an event or outcome.  Prediction has been practiced since the beginning of mankind to protect and support life.  Foreknowledge of future events helped with preparations of security to encourage endurance for longevity.  We predict all the time, good driving is adept predicting what the cars around you are going to do;  predicting if the weather will hold to hang the clothes out to dry;  foreseeing the larder emptying;  planning for the next two days or the next two years;  predicting the outcome of your meeting.  Skilled prediction enables you to plan the action required and to apply the action at the appropriate time;   prediction enables timeous proaction and reaction to secure your immediate and long-term needs.   A necessary integrant, foreknowledge gives advantage in direction decisions.

Three things cannot long remain hidden:  Sun, Moon, Truth   – Buddha


Prognosis stems from the Greek word of pro– before meaning in advance, and gnosis- meaning to know.

Prediction from observed planetary motion has been recorded to be have been used by mankind since antiquity.   The ability to prognosticate accurately became essential in the quest for mankind’s survival and advancement.

Foresights vary in predicting an event, the time of the event and the outcome of the event in future time.     Prognosis of time is derived from the projected position of the movement of the planets, spun forward in cycles of time.

The aim in presenting foresights is to assist with preknowledge of the time of outcome of a particular action.

This is valuable because it enables the timing of a future action with the advantage of foreseeing the result and the time of outcome beforehand.

The dinastro TimeMap is based on mathematical formulae, calculated for each individual entity.   TimeMap projections are procured from the meaning of planetary movement manifesting in future time.  It is a planetary journal of timed actions and outcomes.

TimeMaps reflect time of concepts concerning property,  finance,  health,  recreational activities,  work affairs,  employees,  legal affairs,  equipment,  business products,  sales,  client proposals,  payments,  investments,  the securing of contracts.    Foresights benefit plans by indicating delay in time deadlines, constraint in finance, gain of finance, outcome of proposals, disruptions that result in loss.

–   Predictions reveal cycles within cycles.

–   Cycles are annual, monthly, daily.

Global foresights are calculated with the monthly planetary cycles.   Global provide a view to the prevailing world activities, the platform of operation of those with whom you associate with.  Assessible energy of everyone.

Predictive Foresights unfold the cycles of daily life to help influence the flow of activities to your personal benefit.

dinastro has a keen interest in presenting foresights for business advancement.

The day of a thing’s beginning holds the qualities of that moment of time of its beginning.

The desire for something increases the probability of its occurrence.




The study of the phenomena of time shows time moves in cycles.
Cycles are depicted by the motion of planets.
Your TimeMap charts the planetary movement around you in the present time.
Seen from the earth’s perspective,   planets move around the earth,  forming geometrical aspects with each other.
The aspects they cast from their positions present the event.
This defines the principle of Time.

Time is read by the motion of your personal planets.
Planets depict your business and personal affairs.
The unique placement of each planet forms a pattern.
This pattern is interpreted with the use of keys.
Application of the keys gives the activity within the framework of Time.
The success of the prediction ahead of time is seen by how well the rules are applied.

We can liken the wheel to a puzzle that moves and this is what presents the challenge of linking the event to a time.

The foresights are taken from the position of the fifteen fixed elements on your Natal wheel.  The elements consist of:

– the lights
– the planets
– the planetoids
– the eclipses
– the fixed stars

The position of these elements constitute the fixed wheel of your Nativity.

Advanced forward in time these elements reflect current and future events.
We refer to their motion, advanced forward in time, as being progressed or directed forward.

Measuring the effects of Time, we look at planetary placement and the aspect interactions formed by the various elements comprising the map.
Thus the path of planetary motion act as the clock-hands,  indicating events triggered by their annual, monthly, weekly and daily movement.

Each element has its own distinct definition according to its path of motion.
Each element signifies different aspects in life,  such as the notorious element of disruption, signified by Mars.
The rules apply to all wheels drawn for each span of time.
They give a depth of clarity to the meaning of each wheel which would be overlooked without further calculations.

dinastro e-foresights are calculated around two templates.
One predicts your business affairs of work, finance, contracts, client, investment.
The other template predicts your personal affairs of property, partner, family, finance.
The maps relate outcomes of your business and personal activities in future time.

Activities are chronicled in the present time with predictions of the outcome in future time.
Directions showing future time are divided into the annual year, the month, the week and day.

Of most interest is the calculation which enables the revelation of the outcome in future time from the question of a day past.
This skill has been recently developed.

Each prediction is analysed according to your particular personal individual data.
This approach makes future foresights unique to each individual.

In these times of uncertainty knowledge of future time has a distinct advantage.
Choose the monthly TimeMap for crisp predictions of your personal affairs weeks ahead.

Sagacious Prescription of Time






A TimeMap is a dated account of your personal time.

It is worked out from the chart that depicts the planetary positions on the day of your birth.
The chart is unique to you and links your past and present actions to outcomes in future time.

I use the chart to find the synchronicity between times.  This is what reveals time direction.
Judgement is derived from aspects made by the planets in motion.

Calculations are mostly concerned with configurations of geometry.
These are based on a 360 degree circle, divided into the twelve divisions of sign constellations.
These twelve signs are linked to eleven planets, stars and other astrological elements.
The individual position of each of these elements within the chart form connections which communicate a meaning that is related to time.

To decipher the meaning I use the canon of rules and the precepts of traditional astrology.
To understand its significance I interpret the meaning to relate to your own business transactions.
To find its time solution I spin it forward in time.
Often I can only look backwards to a past time.

I work from The American Ephemeris 1950-2050 at Noon by Neil F. Michelsen and Rique Pottinger and in my calculations I use all the planets and the elements tabulated therein.

Every chart is singular because it is concerned specifically with that individual’s particular realm of business activity and its timed outcome.

The foresights are drawn from each element in your chart.
Each element has a distinct value expressing the time action of a particular aspect in your life.

Thus your map is tailor made for you so that its elements apply exclusively to your personal field of expertise showing your business activities and timed results.
This is what makes the TimeMap a remarkable tool for your private use.

Foresights are intimate.    Communications are confidential.

Usually to predict for one unit of time the drawing of two charts is required.   Each element is assessed according to its placement.

The pattern takes me time to calculate, draw, interpret, understand and write because I must find the planetary solution showing the resolve to your question.

I try to write each foresight to portray your individual activity every day and to provide you with a timed answer to that particular activity.   To answer your own question.  To give you foresight of the outcome of your business action in future time.

You can see your own personal business affairs ahead of time in real time!

Who would not profit from working with his unique TimeMap?


Drawn from your personal birth data the TimeMap becomes exclusively yours.
I consider it a time remedy directing questions of current events into future answers.   It is sensitive to your unique business activities and provides a planetary insight about future events from present action.

The process of unravelling a planetary map is riveting.  I love being engaged in the analysis for the owner of a business.  It answers so many questions!  I marvel at the unique solution that emerges with every individual chart.
It is powerful knowledge having an answer of time to your own question.

If you would like to have your foresights ahead of time email me.

I shall venture to explain how the cycle of time works like a clock of rotations.    That you can see an outcome ahead of time in real time!   I shall show how a TimeMap works and you can determine its benefit for your business yourself.   The map is simple and straight forward.

Knowledge of the fulfilment of desire in time is what drives the subject of prediction.   It unfolds time from the present moment.

If you like what you are reading and you want to see future time, email me.    Let’s talk.




In your diary for this day, let’s use today’s day November 16,  you should take care to write all the things you were engaged with on this particular day.

You should also note there that the prediction for this day indicates that the outcome for today’s activities show on the 22nd January 2021.
Then you flip ahead to the Friday of the 22nd January in the year 2021 and you write the words  -Look at November 16 2020.

This practice encourages observation, improves management of every day affairs, benefits decisions, supports strategy and confirms how incredibly useful the foresights become when linking future with present to past time.

This is the best assessment of the value that the TimeMap provides in assisting you in your business.

It would be imprudent of me to think of committing myself to an agreement before consulting my personal foresights for that time period.
I use the predictions to advance my business plans.
Thus every action I commit to or proposal I submit to,  I look to my foresights to see the day’s future outcome.

Knowledge of the future outcome shows the influence of today’s action.  Knowledge of the future outcome guides the decision I make on a certain day.

Naturally I try to make my plans in the days that will be of benefit to my business and bring me to a position of advantage and profit later.
Also of worth is the prediction of the days where I am at a disadvantage.   My TimeMap shows me the day when to expect a loss.

I write TimeMaps for my clients to help benefit their decisions to advance their own business.
The daily foresights inform by showing the outcome of action in future time.  This impacts my choice of action.
And improves my chance of receiving a favourable outcome in future to my current action of now.

A TimeMap is a personal guide predicting the future.   It becomes a vital addition to your diary.
You use it in your every day.

The foresights are personal to you. They help you appraise your day ahead of time.  You read the daily foresight and its predicted time outcome next to your plans for the day.   Every day.
It is an essential tool if you use your diary to note your plans for your business.

A TimeMap presents answers to your very unique personal business questions.
It is a custom made analysis,  written to serve your own business.  it is intimate.   It’s valuable because it prepares you ahead of time.

Currently I write for a select CxOs to assist with their daily decisions in improving their personal business.

Your TimeMap shows time outcomes of things that are personal to you.    While I am available to assist you the decisions you take are entirely of your own choosing.


In their movement planets reflect our movement.  They herald a particular message.
We encounter difficulties when we don’t create the change their movement signals.  And we also encounter triumph when we align our activity with the communication they convey.  The key is to find the meaning in their message.

The Jupiter Saturn conjunction of 2021 is the culmination of their closeness of 2020.

Jupiter signifies increase, growth.
Saturn signifies decrease, constraints.

This conjunction is prominent because it occurs in solstice showing the year 2021.  The focus here is consolidation of activity.  Confinement to one area of expertise.

The message is specialise on your area of strength.
Focus your attention on your expert skill.
Follow the special line of work you have adopted as your career.
